Blinding cloud sets all ground units' range to melee.

*Siege Tanks have a minimum range, so deployed stanks under a blinding cloud literally can't attack.

*Cloud even affects buildings, so you can virtually disable a Planetary fortress or Photon Cannons with Vipers.

If I remember correctly It was the opposite in sc1, you'd cast it on your own units or where you want to put your units cause it would make them immune from tank fire under the cloud.

Exactly.

Dark swarm was kinda the opposite of cloud. Cloud reduces range of units under it, swarm makes units under it immune to ranged.
